Help us Move you

We are now recruiting participants for our research studies to test new software and devices that give amputees more control.

Lower limb

Our Research

Our lab is developing a next-generation powered prosthesis leg to improve the quality of life for amputees like you. It will be able to understand and predict your intentions (e.g. know when you want to stand/walk and switch tasks seamlessly).

  • Neurally controlled by bioelectric signals to detect your intentions
  • Power provided by an electric motor to enable natural walking

What is Involved?

If you decide to participate, we will work with your schedule to arrange testing sessions in our lab at NCSU (see map to the right). Each session will last approximately 2 hours. During these sessions, you will be asked to perform one or more activities such as:

  • Sit and stand
  • Walk on level ground
  • Walk up and down a short ramp/stairs

 *Compensation will be provided.

 

Eligibility

  • Lower limb amputee
  • Regular use of prosthetic
  • Between 18 and 65 years old
  • Free from cognitive impairment
  • Free from serious illnesses (i.e. stroke, severe heart disease)
